The Bolivian currency is the Boliviano, and its symbol is
Bs. Bills come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and
200 bolivianos; in coins of 1, 2 and 5 bolivianos, and in
10, 20, and 50 bolivian cents.
There are banks and exchange booths within the airport where
you can exchange your currency for bolivianos. Remember, when
you receive your exchanged money, make sure that the transaction
was done correctly.
The dollar is welcome within Bolivia, but you should be careful
with the variations of the dollar value throughout the country.
When you receive cash, dollars or bolivianos, be sure that
the bills you have are in a good condition, in their entirety,
and without any writing on them. Also be careful with counterfeit
money that could be circulating within Bolivia.
